GIRARD OH- Girard and South Range matched up on Friday night for what was one of the more anticipated games of the week. Both teams were coming off impressive victories in week 1. The Raiders made a statement with a 56-28 victory.

It was all South Range to start. The Indians could do nothing to slow down the mighty rushing attack of the Raiders. They quickly jumped out to a 28-6 halftime lead. Girard would fight back in the third however, and score 15 unanswered points to make it 28-21. After trading touchdowns, the Raiders once again locked down the Indians offense, and they cruised to a 56-28 victory.

Dylan Dominguez ran the ship for the Raiders gaining 117 yards on 18 carries. Mike Patrone only played a half, but he threw for 95 yards and 2TDs.

The Raiders will look to stay unbeaten as they host Niles next Friday. Girard will need to bounce back quickly as they will face Poland.
